Re: V 18 disapointment


I was forced to upgrade to Jaws 17 because being an idiot, I did the
free upgrade to Windows 10 without looking at Freedom Scientific's
website first, and it actually uninstalled my original copy of Jaws.
I already had the SMA for 18, so I went ahead and downloaded it. I do
like the fact that it turns down other programs when Jaws is talking
since I listen to music while on the computer.

I have to defend 16, especially the OCR feature. Agreed some of the alleged
improvements through the years haven't amounted to much, but this is a
winner. If u use Office 2013 or later, The ability to both create and edit
PDF's can be a real plus. I've told the story on this list of the old ham
radio manual that came to me as an image file and really needed a cleanup.
This combo can do the job. Also, don't forget PDF's in the work place.

I must add to this discussion that I am "still" on JAWS 13 and Windows 7.
Frankly, I have seen nothing really worthwhile in any of the upgrades of
either JAWS or Windows since these versions. Most of the so-called
"improvements" in JAWS are nothing more than fixes of things that did not
work correctly or the addition of things that should have been there all
along; like the mouse announcement thing now (finally) in v. 18, as others
have commented. What a racket indeed : (

I just got the official e-mail announcing Jaws 18. Disappointed! Doesn't
sound like there is anything improved or new that I will use. Won't upgrade
anytime soon!
